  • Cook on High for 4 hours.

  • Blend sour cream, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a food processor until sauce is smooth; refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Place chicken on a work surface and shred into bite-size chunks; season with salt and pepper. Measure 1/2 cup cooking liquid in slow cooker and discard the rest. Return shredded chicken and 1/2 cup cooking liquid to slow cooker and add cilantro; cook and stir until chicken is heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Spoon chicken into tortillas and top with chipotle cream sauce.

Cook's Note:

Heat is a personal preference. If you don't like a lot of heat, start with one chipotle pepper, taste, and add another if you like.

Made this for Recipe Group...This was easy and good! It really smelled so awesomely yummy while it was cooking that I was actually expecting more flavor from it though. Followed the recipe but started w/ thawed chicken as I did not catch to cook it from frozen until it was too late but that was fine. Added more liquid to the shredded chicken than called for to keep it moist and add more flavor. Loved the chipotle cream sauce (I added extra chipotle b/c we love it). Served on WW flour tortillas w/ shredded cheddar tomatoes red onion slices and the sauce. All in all this was nice for a change and the guys liked it. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Recipe Group: This is excellent! I cooked on low for 6 hours and the chicken was perfect. Subbed white wine vinegar for red. The chipotle cream sauce was great (I only used one pepper) but I think it was a little too much. Half would have been enough for us. Awesome easy dinner thanks for the recipe! Read More
